In the Planescape setting, where Tieflings were originally introduced, they were described as being a mixture of human and “something else” with the implication that the non-human ancestors originated from the evil “lower planes”. In further supplements it was clarified that Tieflings were usually descended from fiends but not the same as half-fiends, since a Tiefling’s fiendish ancestry lies further up the family tree.
This description remained true in 3rd Edition. One of the first artists to depict the tiefling was Tony DiTerlizzi. The tiefling was introduced in the Planescape Campaign Setting   with more information in the first Planescape Monstrous Compendium Appendix  and The Planewalker’s Handbook The tiefling appears in the Monster Manual for this edition  under the planetouched entry.
The fey’ri and tanna’ruk tieflings appeared in Monsters of Faerun The tiefling appears in the revised Monster Manual for this edition under the planetouched entry. The tiefling paragon was introduced in Unearthed Arcana The tiefling appears as a player character race in the Planar Handbook and Races of Destiny The tiefling appears as a player character race in the Player’s Handbook for the 4th edition  and again in Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms The tiefling appears as a player character race in the Player’s Handbook for the 5th edition In the Empire, the noble class was completely obsessed with preserving and gaining power.
Rumors of their schemes and obsession with power reached a realm called the Nine Hellslocated around the Astral Sea. The devils that resided in the Nine Hells gave the ruling classes of Bael Turath visions while they slept, containing the directions for a grisly, month-long ritual that would extend their rule into eternity.
The details of the ritual have been left unclear in the books from the Player’s Handbook series describing the events, though it is described as being very horrible. As the ritual demanded the participation of every noble house, those that refused were wholly slaughtered. Once this was done, the ruling class began their ritual.
Afterwards, devils from the Nine Hells began to appear, and the nobles gladly made pacts with them. These pacts gave power to the nobles and their descendants forever, but also gave them the devilish features of horns, non-prehensile tails, sharp teeth, and red skin. From that point forward, the former humans were the race known as the tieflings.
In the 5th Edition, the overlord of the Nine Hells, Asmodeus, is cited as the ancestral source of their devilish features. These include horns located on their heads, pointed sharp teeth, extra fingers, cloven hooves in place of feet, dnugeons, and unusually colored eyes. They exude a feeling of “evil” even though their race has become civil and no longer lusts for power.
Tiefling – Wikipedia
Many races distrust or outright hate tieflings, seeing them as devil worshippers. Tiefling villains often live up to this hanbook, whereas player characters have the choice to abandon this stereotype. In 4th edition and later, tieflings are a core character race  and have had their appearance altered from 3.
Tiefling skin ranges through common human shades right into the reds, ranging from brick red to a ruddy tan.
Tiefling hair, which starts behind their horns, ranges from dark blue to purple to red in addition to more normal human colors. Their lack of faith also means paladins and clerics are seldom, if tiefpings, found. Most tieflings prefer to be adventurers and rarely ever adventure with their own kin due to the prejudices of other races people are concerned when two or more of their kind travel together.
In most editions, tiefling naming conventions consist of ancestral Infernal names. In most editions, tieflings are described as slow to trust, but those who do earn their trust and tiefings earn a firm friend or ally for life. Unlike half-fiends, tieflings are not necessarily of evil alignments.
Tieflings of all alignments exist, including good, although many take more shady jobs, such as that of thieves, assassins or spies. Tieflings are often portrayed as antiheroes. In a standard 3. In 4th edition, tieflings have the same alignment choices as any other starting character. In 5th edition, tieflings do not have an innate tendency towards evil, though many usually end up going down that path due to the prejudice against them. Also due to the prejudice against them, tieflings have a fierce independent streak and are inclined towards being chaotic.
In the Forgotten Realms campaign settingboth tieflings and aasimar are tifelings common than in other settings. Tieflings even have elven and orc counterparts Fey’ri and Tanarrukrespectively.
In the 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons, less common varieties of the tiefling were introduced, including a dwarven counterpart, the Maeluth and a halfling counterpart, the Wispling. In the Planescape campaign settingtieflings are a common race available to player charactersthough they are mistrusted and reviled by many inhabitants of the planes. In the Pathfinder Roleplaying Gametieflings are commonly known by the colloquial term Hellspawn. Due to limitations in the Open Game License editionn, they are referred to exclusively by this term in the Pathfinder Tales novels.
In the empire of Cheliax, tieflings are subjugated and often enslaved, despite the royal house’s affiliation with Hell. Some tieflings have a stronger connection to one of the fiendish races, such as the grimspawn, who are descended from Daemons, and the pitborn, who are descended from Devils. Tieflings are a playable race in Urban Arcanawhich is based on the premise that races from Dungeons and Dragons exist on earth.
Most tieflings in Urban Arcana are humans with horns, although more obvious appearances exist.
